Very highly recommended.
We organised a private 2 hours' beach & bush ride, led by Equathon instructor, Jessica Cahill. There are many different options available from Equathon (details on the website), but we only had time for a short ride this time.
Of course, the beach part of the ride was truly beautiful. In fact, it felt just like being in a movie, having the entire beach just to ourselves, with the horses wading through the shallow waves. The bush part of the ride was also pretty, with banksias and paperbark trees.
I took two children, both aged about 10, one of them a complete novice. The children were keen to learn some skills on the ride, not just do a boring nose-to-tail walk. Jessica was wonderful with striking just the right balance to keep them happy, while not taking it too fast for the novice in our party.
The horses were responsive and beautifully well-mannered. Equathon has a wide range of horses available, suitable for different riders, unlike other organisations we have experienced.
Special thanks also to Rebecca Harr, who was very helpful, not only with setting up our booking, but also helping us find our way to the starting point and then saddling up and organising helmet and boots for one of our party who needed them.
